The "Rising Star Expedition", known for its recent recovery of one of the largest troves of hominin (early human) fossils ever discovered in one place, is now ambitiously seeking new early-career scientists to study the more than 1,200 fossil elements retrieved from the site and now housed at the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits University) in Johannesburg, South Africa. "The fossil material is an exceptional sample representing most of the parts of the skeleton, and our...

co-authors: Pierre-Francois PUECH and Bernard PUECH http://independent.academia.edu/pfpuech/Papers Who were the earliest humans? After the chimp-hominid split (dated ~6 million years ago), the biped lineage leading to us is characterized by tool making and by brain expansion. The earliest tools may date back to Australopithecus afarensis having anatomical characters conforming very closely for a early stage of human evolution...

Abstract: A categorical ontology of space and time is presented for emergent biosystems, super-complex dynamics, evolution and human consciousness. Relational structures of organisms and the human mind are naturally represented in non-Abelian categories and higher dimensional algebra. The ascent of man and other organisms through adaptation, evolution and social co-evolution is viewed in categorical terms as variable biogroupoid representations of evolving species. The unifying theme of...

Anthropologists are often interested in questions such as 'What do chimpanzees optimize for when they walk, and when they climb?', 'What would Lucy (Australopithecus Afarensis) look like when it walked?', and 'How did the modern human musculoskeletal system evolve from its evolutionary ancestors?'. All of these problems can be cast as learning a controller for a complex biomechanical system that optimizes some criteria. Reinforcement learning offers a set of techniques to address this problem...

It is thought of a good way to determine the reproductive capabilities of the male species.
